KSBC Lent Project 2019 – 2 Things 4 China

The story so far... when Mao Tse-Tung came to power in China there were about 2 million Christians there. What followed was probably the cruellest and most intensive persecution of Christians ever.

In the late 1970’s foreign missionaries were allowed back into China. They didn’t know what to expect. To their surprise and delight they discovered that Christianity had flourished and they estimated there were now 60 million Christians in China.

The Chinese church is still growing 1 million new Christians every year!

This growing church desperately needs 2 things

  1. Pastors – In China there is one pastor to every 9,000 Christians. Pastor Liu looks after 45,000 believers in 244 congregations; only 44 of these groups have a church building.

  2. Bibles – Chinese Christians need Bibles in their own language so that they can hear God’s word speaking directly to them.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and he will show you the right way.

Proverbs 3:5-6

There is a special box in church for your gifts, which will be sent via Bible Society after Easter.
